We have a burst 3/4" HP hose, the one that is located inside the Razor E-Chain. Trying to figure out a way to open the e-chain links so we can simply remove and replace the hose. Alternative is to attach new hose to the broken hose and pull however this is not easy given the 180 turn in the chain and the length. Not an easy task so looking for a way to open the links in the e-chain. Anyone with experience replacing that hose (part #42815)? Thanks. Jordan

Roz:

If you look at the cross link you will see like a Tab or the spot that interlocks the pieces together on each side. You will have to take a flat head screwdriver and basically pry on the crosslink to be able to "pop" it out of its spot. It will kind of roll out. to reassemble just take a small hammer to pop it back into its spot.

I actually tried to open the links but was concerned about breaking the track. Anyhow we got the hose replaced and the process was easier than initially expected when we had two people (one pulling the old hose coupled to the new hose and one using a wrench to keep the coupling from catching on a link).

all over the place
For the main hose we added a second protector that curls the other way (right hand and left hand way, if that makes sense).
We had that before and the hose lasted much longer.
